Climate Change and Disaster Risk course ongoing; Registration for the Damage and Reconstruction Needs Assessment course now open

EMI has started the delivery of the Climate Change and Disaster Risk (CCDR) course on May 26, with 25 participants from different organizations around the globe. CCDR is a specialized course that aims at supporting the global agenda of managing the risks associated to climate change through increasing knowledge and awareness. It explores the inter-linkages between disaster risk management and climate change adaptation. It also outlines strategies, methods and tools for integrated climate risk management. The course will end on June 25, 2014.

EMI is also scheduled to deliver the Damage and Reconstruction Needs Assessment (DRNA) course on July 7 to August 6, 2014. Damage and Reconstruction Needs Assessment (DRNA) is a specialization course under the Natural Disaster Risk Management Program that offers a set of diagnostic tools to measure the type and extent of damage and losses caused by a specific disaster, to identify immediate recovery and longer-term reconstruction needs, and to determine the economic and financial implications of the event. This can be used immediately after the emergency stage to assess the direct and indirect effects of a catastrophic event, and its implications for the social well-being and economic performance of the affected area. Registration for this course is until July 4, 2014.

The course is supported by the Course Support Team (CST) which is composed of Dr. Nilgun Okay (Subject Matter Expert), Jesus Dominic Dizon (Course Director), Lalaine Bergonia (Course Facilitator), and Ma. Narcielyn Rizal (Course Administrator).
